What do you think of Nutanix?

Nutanix has helped us with a system that has high performance in a small footprint. It has been very easy to use and is very reliable. Using AHV looks good, and is a much cheaper alternative to VMware. There were initially some setup complications with Nutanix on Dell hardware by not having Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) open locally on the network switches. The simple hour install was closer to a day, but the system has been solid since then.

What do you think of VMware vSAN?

Primary Use Case: VMware was used to manage multiple servers in a DMZ for an eCormerce service (Coy). VMware made the server management, migration and backup/maintenance efficient. • Improvements to My Organization: The management of servers was easy from a central standpoint. The server rooms were less cluttered as servers were virtual and easy to manage. • Valuable Features: The migration of servers feature makes server rack maintenance easy. • Room for Improvement: It is a memory intensive app, which should be improved. Also, the server files are larger than before. • Use of Solution: Three to five years.

How has it helped my organization?

It is all about the ease of management and better utilization of the storage capacity. It is about the dynamics of the storage. You can move one storage tier to another storage tier.

What needs improvement?

One very important feature is the analysis of the logs which should be there in the system. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with all the features in the system.

What other advice do I have?

Close your eyes and go for it.
